If you could add foot control you'd have the perfect Cub Cadet!

Thanks. I have been wanting to do this since I did my last custom build.

Since this will be a loader tractor I may look into doing this. It needs to be smooth for the wife to be able to use it.

Thanks guys.

I removed the loader from my 1650 and started modifying the sub frame to work on the 2182 I had to do some trimming on the area where it bolts to the frame near the steering cylinder mount on the tractor and drill some different holes in the sub frame. I will also have to change the mounting points for the diagonal braces that go from the uprights to the front of the tractor frame. The power steering cylinder is in the way. I will probably just lengthen them to able be go to the holes in the front of the frame right under the grill. In the back since the super is longer I made up some angle iron brackets to use existing holes in the frame in front of the rear axle and also use the existing mounting holes in the loader frame. I have a set of axle braces on order and will use them tie all of this together. I do not have any pictures yet but will post some when I get farther along. So far it all looks good.

Default Loader install progress

Just about finished with the modifications to my kwik-way loader so I can install it on my new super. I had to do a bunch of grinding and rewelding to repair previous owner botched repairs. At one time in its life this loader must have been used ad a battering ram. I could not believe all of the cracks and bad welds. all of the mounting holes were all egged out like it was used with them loose. It must have had the damage done before it was mounted on the 1650 it was on because that tractor is in great shape and none of the holes in the frame where the loader attached are egged out. I hope to finish up today and paint the subframe and upright supports. I will paint the main frame of the loader later as I have some repairs I want to do to it.

Left side attaching point for subframe.I had to trim to fit shape of frame and drill new holes to use existing holes in the tractor frame.

Right side of subframe mount

Rear axle support braces installed and L bracket to mount rear of subframe. Again I used existing holes in the tractor frame. I plan on drilling a hole in the L bracket and through the axle support brace and bolt them together to add further strength and support.

I had to make new diagonal braces to go to the uprights because the power Steering cylinder was in the way of the existing mounts on the subframe. I made a bracket that bolts to the front of the frame. I need to cut the tubes to length and drill them so I can bolt to bracket. With some luck I should have the loader installed Saturday.

Thanks for this thread, I have the same situation pretty much. I have a 2182 with no motor or hood and a johnson 10 loader that is currently on a wheel horse.

If a Cyclops super had a steel nose and foot controls it would just about be the perfect garden tractor.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
